High 4 Da Highladays – [Smino]

Hip-hop’s infatuation with Christmas music has led to some memorable, festive bangers in the past, and Smino wants to add his name to your holiday playlist with the release of his new double-single, ‘High 4 Da Highladays’. The St. Louis native gets in the holiday spirit in true Smino fashion on these two new tracks, and gets an assist from his righthand producer Monte Booker and the soulful intonations of Masego.

Holiday songs always bring out the more lighthearted side in an artist, and as someone who already is known for not taking himself too seriously in his music, he sounds like he’s just having a good time on these two tracks. It’s difficult to not join along with him either as he slickly flows in his signature melodic trance, slipping in merry references to this time of year in his verses.
